    "Bock-a-bolk" for chocolate milk....

    My 3 year old seems to put a "w" on most words. Like this morning he said he was walking like a "wobster" (lobster) and calls my mother "wammy" (grammy). I love it!
  • spaghetti........"basketti"

    yucktoliptis for eucalyptus
    helloclopter for helicopter
    skasketi for spaghetti
    scan franskisco for san francisco

    My daughter:
    I have no idea why, but she went through a phase where she put a "ba" sound in front of everything: She wanted to go to the ba-zoo, or play with the ba-tar (guitar). She also would put words together and make her own. My favorite was "know-a-lize" which was her combination of "know" and "realise"..."I didn't know-a-lize that cartoon was on"

    Pretty much every word! Was in speech therapy for years... Lead me to not talk very much to anyone lol. I still have to remember to do my best even to this day with pronouncing words correctly, take things slowly, and not to be overly shy lol.

    Think I have to agree with the "spaghetti" being the cutest one lol.
  • Apparently when I was very young, around my second christmas, I fell in love with the song that starts "Jolly Old St. Nicholas, lean your ear this way......".....however, apparently I was not able to pronounce it correctly. I kept telling my mom to play "Charlie Oats" on the record player. She could not figure out what I wanted for ages.....finally one day she put that christmas song on, adn i started jumping up and down clapping and hollering "Charlie Oats",,,,,

    To the day she died, she called Santa Clause "Charlie Oats"......

    'Hearse.' I would call it '*kitten*'. Thank goodness there weren't too many deaths in my family when I was a kid.

    I said I had a "diarrhea" instead of a diary. I was a disgusting child.

    I had a hard time with my "s" when I was little. Lets just say when I went to the store with my mom, I only had to ask for a sucker one time...
